2019 Hope for Humanity
ABOUT THE EVENT
Due to the uncertainty of the pandemic and for the safety of our Survivors and our guests, we made the decision to host the annual Hope for Humanity event VIRTUALLY. It will be an inspiring program commemorating the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II by honoring Survivors and Liberators.
The program will be broadcast live at 7 P.M. on Thursday, October 22, 2020. A link to the program will be sent to all registered guests* 24 hours in advance.
YOUR SUPPORT OF OUR MISSION IS CRITICAL
Now, more than ever, your financial support of our work and mission is critical. Consider making a donation in the amount you would have spent on a table sponsorship or a ticket purchase.
Due to COVID-19, we temporarily closed our doors in early March. During that time, we made the decision to also temporarily pause all fundraising in deference to our community dealing with the pandemic themselves – many still in the midst of recovering from the devastating tornadoes from October of last year. For now, our doors continue to remain closed, but our important community outreach and educational programs continue virtually and all of them - including our new summer camps, Camp Upstander and Upstander Institute - completely free of charge!
This event normally welcomes more than 1,100 guests for an evening of good company and food as we honor an Upstander whose work personifies the Museum’s mission to teach the history of the Holocaust and advance human rights to combat prejudice, hatred, and indifference. Moreover, this beloved and important fundraiser raises more than $1 million in support of the Museum’s annual operating budget, including our exhibitions and educational programming.
